My story

[p]Between now and 4 August 2021 [NOW UPDATED TO 21 JUNE in line with the Roadmap to Recovery!], Nathan will be walking, cycling or running the equivalent of the journey from ours to a very special friend in Edinburgh, 373 miles away and will be raising money for the Brentwood Catholic Children’s Society.[/p][p]Money raised will help BCCS support the emotional health and wellbeing of children and young people in schools across Essex and East London.[/p][p]Thank you for your support[/p][p][br][/p][p][b]8 February 2021:[/b][/p][p]Nathan would like to thank you all for your generous support and encouragement. He’s very pleased to announce that @ 8 February 2021 he has almost made it as far as Elveden![/p][p]38.24 miles done and 334.76 to go![/p][p][b]16 February 2021:[/b][/p][p]64 miles into his journey now so Nathan is making good progress. He's almost at Setchey, just south of Kings Lynn![/p][p][b]22 February 2021:[/b][/p][p]Nathan is now 105 miles into his journey taking him 'virtually' as far as Boston in Lincolnshire![/p][p][b]8 March 2021:[/b][/p][p]This week Nathan has walked, run and cycled another 34 miles. He's now at 170 miles which took his virtual journey across the Humber and up to Newbald in Yorkshire! [/p][p]Nathan is still going out most days (he's only missed two days since he started) and is definitely looking forward to returning to school, on Wednesday, to see his friends. He's not as enthusiastic about getting up early though! [/p][p][br][/p][p][b]Monday 15 March 2021[/b][/p][p]This week Nathan has enjoyed being back at school and catching up with his friends. He has continued to walk, run and cycle (in sunshine, rain and hail) and his virtual journey has taken him to a village just north of York, Skelton. That's 197 miles clocked up so far with 175 to go. He's making excellent progress and it certainly feels like he'll be virtually arriving in Edinburgh well before his target of 4 August. [/p][p][br][/p][p][b]23 March 2021[/b][/p][p]Nathan has made excellent progress again this week and he's now clocked up 238 miles. His virtual journey has taken him as far as Darlington and he has just 134 miles to go.[/p][p][br][/p][p]On this day of reflection, Nathan will be joining his school friends and family to remember, with love, those we have lost over the last year. We are very grateful to BCCS for the Bereavement Counselling Nathan received.[/p][p][br][/p][p][b]6 April 2021[/b][/p][p]Since our last update Nathan has enjoyed walking, running and cycling a further 53 miles and has just 80 miles to go to reach his virtual destination of Edinburgh! He's now at Chollerton, just North East of Newcastle.[/p][p][br][/p][p]When the Government issued the 'Roadmap out of Lockdown' Nathan set himself a personal target to reach Edinburgh before 21 June when we hope the restrictions will be lifted. It looks like he's on target to achieve this with just 30 miles to go until he crosses the border into Scotland![/p][p][br][/p][p]Keep going Nathan - we're all very proud of you![/p][p][br][/p][p][b]21 April 2021[/b][/p][p]Nathan has clocked up another 40 miles and has now crossed the border into Scotland on his virtual journey to Edinburgh! With just over 30 miles to go he's almost there![/p][p][br][/p][p][b]28 April 2021[/b][/p][p]Nathan is delighted to announce that he reached his virtual destination of Edinburgh.[/p][p]Back in the cold, dark days of January, Nathan set himself a target of 2 miles a day but soon started to embrace the challenge and has achieved an average of over 4 miles a day and often clocked up over 10 miles a day. [/p][p][br][/p][p]Nathan is very grateful for all the support he has received and immensely proud that he raised over £1000.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Nathan hopes that his posts will have encouraged children and young people to look after their emotional health and seek support when they need it. [/p][p][br][/p][p]Many thanks for all your support[/p]
